of the law professor. the theory of interpretation set forth here is that it is a very humbling one. it does not leave a whole lot up to the policy discretion of the judge, in fact, leaves nothing. the name of the game is to give the fairest reading to what the people's representatives have enacted. that's what a judge is supposed to do. now, that is an uncongenial approach to someone who wants to do good, who wants to use his office as it can be used to do things that he thinks are good for the society. if one has that zeal, one will not like the approach set forth in this book. c-span: and in the earlier part, which you have label under "forward," you have a sentence here, "every lawyer, every citizen concerned about how the judiciary rises above politics and produces a government of law and not of men should find this book invaluable." you know this, you just got accused of being political at the enof the -- end of the term. >> guest: was i accused of being political? i was out of the country. i don't read that stuff. c-span: what happens when you hear them say, oh, he's the most politica

ability to say, did you actually choose that and did you choose it in a way that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competency is really a multifaceted construct from a legal perspective. it could be competency to be executed, it could be competency to commit a crime. it could be competency to contribute to the decision as to whether voluntarily commit yourself to a mental hospital. it could be competency to participate in an abortion decision. so competency means many different things. the first thing you have to do as a scientist is ask the question, well, what does the law mean by it because if you want me to measure it, i have to somehow apply it. so going back to the question of free will, because a scientist can't operationally define it, they can't measure it, they're not really that much use to legal debates about free will. now, what does it mean on the legal side? i actually think the idea of free will or what is often referred to as volitional control plays

to democratize the way we make laws in this country. the more people have a say in writing the law, the betert law. the fewer the people the worse the law. big corporations, for example, shouldn't write corporate tax law, and gun owners shouldn't be the only people involved in gun law. anybody can get shot by a gun, killed by a gun, and they all ought to have a say. and, that ladies and gentlemen, as joe biden would say, includes all of us. all of us should make gun law, not just the gun people. so let's go at it. and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue because the other side is still into keeping theirs. you know, with their cold dead hands. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

of impoverished communities of color, law-enforcement incentives aimed at the number of arrests law-enforcement makes rather than quality of the arrests, racial profiling and rapid prison building some of which has entailed huge pockets for private companies in this country. as a result the united states incarcerate almost a quarter of the prisoners in the entire world, we have only 5% of the world's population. war on drugs which is a term coined by president nixon 40 years ago has not only exponentially increased the number of people behind bars through altering law-enforcement priorities and incentives but also promoted sentencing reform policies that have kept people in prison for dramatically longer periods of time and this has largely been over the last 4 years as a result of a lot of lawmaking by anecdote. when you hear about what named after individuals usually is in response to a terrible crime that has been committed but often has far reaching consequences far beyond what lawmakers even conceive of when they enact this kind of legislation. you see that with the polyglot mu
